This video chronicles the life and times of the noted African-American historian, scholar and Pan-African activist John Henrik Clarke (1915-1998). *
Both a biography of Clarke himself and an overview of 5,000 years of African history, the film offers a provocative look at the past through the eyes of a leading proponent of an Afrocentric view of history. *
From ancient Egypt and Africaâs other great empires, Clarke moves through Mediterranean borrowings, the Atlantic slave trade, European colonization, the development of the Pan-African movement, and present-day African-American history. *
"Powerful people will NEVER educate powerless people on what it means to take the power away from them. The aim of powerful people is to stay powerful by ANY means necessary." *
Witness Mugabe, Mubarak, Moammar, Assad etc.
